It looks like the company is not yet ready to call it a year. Recently in an event in China, Honor announced the Honor View 20. The handset comes with a large display complete with an in-display cutout hole for the front camera and HiSilicon’s top-of-the-line chipsest.
The Honor View 20’s front camera has a 25MP sensor. It’s not found on a notch, but rather in a small 4.5mm cutout. According to the company, they used an advanced lithography process that allows for a more seamless design, making it more durable with less light bleed.
At the back, the phone boasts a 48MP rear camera with a 3D ToF sensor. The main sensor outputs 12MP images and uses a Quad-Bayer method similar to the process used by the Huawei P20 Pro.
The phone also sports a unique design here as well. It has a reflective V-pattern design that appears when hit by light at the right angle.
Up front, the Honor View 20 has a 6.4-inch full HD+ IPS display with an impressive 91.82% screen-to-body ratio. There’s also an octa-core HiSilicon 980 processor under the hood, paired with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. And powering the devices is a fairly large 4,000mAh battery.
The Honor View 20 will come to China first, priced at CNY2,999 for the 6GB + 128GB variant, and CNY3,499 for the 8GB + 128GB variant. Converted to local currency, that’s roughly around PHP23,100 and PHP26,900, respectively.
An 8GB + 256GB Moschino edition is also available for CNY3,999 (around PHP30,700).
The View 20 is expected to launch globally in Paris on January 2019.
